Basic description

Published in 1977 for the first time by Radloff LS.

In 1991, Radloff LS has tested the CES-D on a population of child and adolescents as well as Faulstich ME et al in 1986 (CES-DC: CES-D for Children).

Eaton WW et al. revised the CES-D in 2004 in order to match the criteria definied in DSM-IV-TR (American Psychiatric Association, 2000): CESD-R.

Since its first publication,  the CES-D has evolved through time and has been tested and modified a lot.
